Just Eat is one of the most popular ways for people in Northampton to order tasty takeaway food.

But comparison between how the website's customers rate the outlet and the official food hygiene rating by the Food Standards Agency show some surprising contrasts.

Just Eat does not reveal the hygiene ratings of takeaways featured on its website, although the company intends to trial this feature in Northern Ireland.

Just Eat failed to respond to the Chron yesterday. But in a statement to BBC Online, the company said: "Food safety is an issue we take extremely seriously. We actively work to raise standards and now offer free accredited food hygiene training to any restaurant that signs up to our platform.

"Whenever any potential food safety issues are brought to our attention our restaurant compliance team will review and investigate."
